Howdy folks. First time customer with Outlaw. Saw the ads all over Facebook, piqued my interest y'might say. Gave it some time to mull over my complete thoughts and really give things a proper go, wanted to give everything a fair shake.
I ordered the Gambler and Blazing Saddles in spray cologne form. What I got was a nice little box that seemed designed with environmental conscientiousness in mind. Paper and cardboard packing materials served to protect the goods, which themselves come in their own nice little slide-out boxes.

As it dries down, you get a musty sweetness that's reminiscent of bourbon corn's mustiness alongside a dry tobacco. Again, still…
